!!''REGIMES OF MEMORY II ''- Call for papers

!Academia Europaea, Polish Regional Office on International Relations in Wrocław, Willy Brandt Center for German and  European Studies and Institute of Political Science at University of Wrocław invite young scholars (PhD candidates and postdocs), to take part in the interdisciplinary conference to be held in Wrocław (Poland) on October 9-10, 2014.
Download the [Call for Papers|Call_for_Papers.pdf]

__Context and rationale:__ 

The region of Central and Eastern Europe is overburdened with history, centuries-old grudges, rival narratives and ethno-political conflicts. From Poland and Baltic states, through Ukraine and Hungary to the East and West Balkans political cultures are dominated by various grievances, fears and pursuits of amends as a consequence of unprocessed historical traumas. Competing regimes of memory manifest themselves in different interpretations of symbolic dates, places and traditions. Undoubtedly, they are substantial parts of national and communal identities, but at the same time they preserve and in many cases fuel historical traumas, grievances and past resentments. That vicious circle of commemorating history and fueling historical grudges poses questions about the role which is played by collective memory in the processes of trauma management and reconciliation. Can we keep the memory of historical events alive without preserving historical grievances? What is required for reconciliation: the act of forgiving or the act of forgetting? The goal of this conference is to assess the various means in which communities and nations could and can overcome historical resentments. A selection of the conference papers will be published in the quarterly New Eastern Europe. 

__Interdisciplinary approach:__
